Hard floor spray stripping is the process of removing all the finish that may be on the floor and refinishing it to return it to a ‘like new’ state. Floor stripping is one of the most labour, chemical and equipment intensive tasks for cleaners to undertake. Our online training course is an awareness level course which provides trainees with an understanding of how this task is carried out.
Employers have a legal duty to ensure the health and safety for cleaners and anyone else that may be affected by this type of work.
The task of hard floor spray stripping presents a variety of hazards to cleaners. This includes exposure to hazardous chemicals; manual handling; and slips, trips, and falls, as well as exposure to electrical hazards. Anyone undertaking this task must be provided with training to ensure they are able to work without undue risks to themselves or anyone else in the vicinity.
This course supports meeting the legal duty of employers to provide adequate training for workplace risks.
